Another suspect has been identified in connection with the murder of fallen Louisiana rapper Lil Snupe. According to a statement from the Winnfield Police, Edrick O. Steward, 21, was arrested on charges with manslaughter July 3rd at the Winnfield City Jail. Snupe’s suspected killer, Tony Holden, 36, turned himself into authorities last month and was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

While no other details are known regarding Stewart’s involvement, a photo of the accused was released. Holden is being held on a $2 million bond in another location and a bond will most likely be set for Stewart as well. Snupe was allegedly shot several weeks ago over a video game dispute.

Last week, family and friends of the Dream Chasers signee, born Addarren Ross, held a funeral service for the late rapper at the Jonesboro-Hodge High School auditorium in Jonesboro.

The hip-hop community, especially Meek Mill and Curren$y, were affected deeply by Snupe’s premature death. “I’m never one to talk at funerals,” Meek said, according to the Schreveport Times. “. I saw something in him. His demo tape spoke to me. I saw myself in him.”—Anthony Centeno
